    I was there for an endometrial biopsy which is painful but the Doctor and Lauren were a great team. I felt cared for and comfortable in their care. Dr Heffron goes above and beyond what most doctors do. I always leave his care with zero questions he is an excellent doctor. Lauren has a kindness about her that is infectious. These two put me at ease in an uncomfortable situation and I couldn?t ask for more. Thank you!!

    I really enjoyed Ari. He was thorough and prepared me for the procedure I was nervous about. The procedure was very smooth and he was communicative and great. I didn?t receive any information about after care and realized on my visit summary (a couple days later) that there was important information that I had missed.
